Road to the Mansfield (Express Investigations Book 1) by CB Laurence

Road to the Mansfield is the first book in the Express Investigations Series and is a suspenseful read that one you start reading there’s no stopping until you finish. This is a new author to me but I must say im a fan already. This is one of those books that will have you turning the pages while on the edge of your seat trying to put all the pieces together. This authors style of writing along with their characters make for a wonderful story. This is about three different people and three different stories but one fateful night there worlds collide and no one saw it coming. This is a fast paced story where there’s alot going on but this author did a wonderful job bring everything together . I’m not going to give anything away but I highly recommend reading this book to find out what happens next. I can’t hardly wait to get my hands on the next book in this series. I look forward to reading many more books by this author.

Painter of the Damned (Painted Souls Book 2) by Rob Samborn

Painter of the Damned is the second book in the Painted Souls Series and is a wonderfully written Historical Thriller that will grab your attention from the beginning and doesn’t let go till the end. I’d highly recommend reading the first book in this series if you haven’t already as it gives you a better understanding of what is going on and you get to know the characters better plus its just as amazing as this one. Nick and Julia are just trying to get home Venice and leave behind the nightmare of a vacation but before they make it to the American Consulate they are captured by Interpol and returned to Venice. Della Porta believes Nick knows the location of a book that will give him world changing powers. As the past seems to take over nick its completely up to Julia to take down Della Porta and save Nick. Holy Cow this book is packed full of action ,drama, suspense and so much more. I have recommend reading this nail biting thriller to find out what happens next. I’m looking forward to seeing what he brings us next.

Malayeka (Heartstrings Book 3) by Brooke May

Malayeka is the third book in the Heartstrings Series and is a Contemporary Romance that once you start reading there’s no stopping until you finish. I literally read this in one sitting because I had to know what was going to happen. This is a story about Malayeka and she’s a cupid on a mission to right her wrongs from years ago. She’s set out to set things right but will she accomplish or is it really to late? Can Mala redeem herself? I highly recommend reading this book to find out how everything plays out. The characters are fun developed and relatable plus they bring the story to life. This can be read as a standalone but I recommend reading this series in order as each book is just as good as the last one. I can’t wait to read more from this Author.

Shadow Patterns of Melt by J. R. P. Fogg

Shadow Patterns of Melt is a Sci-Fi Adventure that I had a hard putting down once I got into it. It started out a bit slow and I wasn’t sure what I got myself into but after the first couple chapters things changed. I overall truly enjoyed reading this book its just a bit different than the other Sci-Fi books I’ve read. This is a fairly new author to me and I’m definitely going to check out what other books they have written. This authors style of writing is a bit different and the storyline a bit out of the ordinary but everything flowed so smoothly. The characters are well developed, likable and make it easy to picture everything that is going on. This story is about showing determination and going for what you want while living your life your way not what someone else wants. I’m not going to give anything away but I do highly recommend reading this book to find out what happens next. I look forward to reading more from this Author.

Amaleigha and the Big Idea is a sweet yet inspirational children’s book with great illustrations.

Dream-Shifter by Lois Wickstrom

Dream-Shifter is a fantasy/children’s book that is intended for readers ages eight to twelve years old but I think anyone can enjoy reading this children’s book. We are huge fans of this author and this one may be a bit longer than her other books but we made it a fun bedtime story. My son is almost five and he loved this magical story about Gwendolyn and how she has the ability to shift into the animals shes dreaming about. But what happens when she gets woke up abruptly and is stuck as an Elk? I highly recommend reading this book to find out what happens next as we follow along with Gwendolyn and her journey. I can’t wait to read more from this Author.

The Magical Summer of Miranda Stone (The Emergence Duology Book 1) by A.D. Brazeau

The Magical Summer of Miranda Stone is a wonderfully written YA/Fantasy that pulled me in from the beginning and I found myself lost in the pages and read on one afternoon. This author knocked it out of the park with this one along with amazing characters that made me feel like I was right there with them. This is packed with action , adventure, magic and so much more . Miranda is a young woman who wakes up one day feeling different and soon realizes she has magic powers but is scared and doesn’t want to cause any danger to her family and runs away. She finds herself in New Orleans and finds out there are others like her with powers and these guys set out to help her . Will she stay with her new friends or go back home to her family? I highly recommend reading this book to find out what happens next. I’m looking forward to the next in this series.

Rainbow’s Red Book of Poetry by Lily Lawson

Wow Not exactly what I was expecting yet it was exactly what I needed. I’ve been struggling lately with everything and each and every one of these poems spoke to me in a different way. Keep Learning ,Keep Growing , Be Yourself, Do your Best is something I tell myself everyday before heading into work. I felt emotional while reading these poems that definitely touched my heart. I’m going to carry this with me as positive reassurance that everything will be alright. I highly recommend reading this Inspirational book as I think many of these poems we all need to hear at one point in our life or another. I’m looking forward to reading more from this Author.

The Rom Com Movie Club is the first book in The Rom Com Movie Club Series and is a wonderfully written Contemporary Romance that once you start reading there’s no stopping until you finish. I loved absolutely everything about this book from the amazing characters that are relatable, fully developed and real to the storyline that flowed so well that you feel like you are right there with them. I found myself chuckling to being a bit sad as this story has it all from drama, humor and lots of bantering. This is Lisa and Ryan’s story, she’s used to being tossed around has growing up in foster care she didn’t have the best idea of what happily ever after really is. Then there’s Ryan and he’s moved home and staying with his parents until something comes along Lisa and three of her friends get together once a month for Rom com movie club where they each get facial and watch a rom com amongst other things. These two definitely have the chemistry and attraction but can they have a happily ever after ? I highly recommend reading this book and I can’t wait to read more from this Author.
